(SPOT.ph) The pandemic has put a stop to so many events and celebrations that most have already become accustomed to intimate gatherings. While that may be a good thing, there’s still something special about big gatherings that has us holding out hope they'll become a possibility again soon enough. And with the Inter-Agency Task Force recently announcing Alert Level 1 in select areas of the countries, this might be the sign that we’re slowly but surely getting back to some of our old ways. Yes, that also means more celebrations coming your way and if you’re reading this article, chances are, you have an upcoming occasion—such as that long-awaited wedding—which would require a venue that can safely hold a number of people with minimal public health standards in place. Well, worry not, dear Spotters, as we've got your back!
